Underlines the vital importance of women in security
“Around the world today, women are refusing to sit on the sidelines while extremism undermines their communities, steals their sons, kills their husbands, and destroys family after family. They’re joining police forces in Afghanistan. They’re writing newspaper articles in Yemen. They’re forming organizations such as Sisters Against Violent Extremism that has now spread to 17 countries.”
– Remarks, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Secretary of State. Tampa, Florida. May 23, 2012.
This past Wednesday, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton brought international attention to SAVE (Sisters Against Violent Extremism) in her remarks at the Special Operations Command Gala Dinner. This is the second time that she has shone a spotlight on our organization's work on the global stage – underlining the vital importance of women in security. We are proud to be acknowledged as an organization committed to investing in women around the world, and working for a safer and more secure world.
